Here are some scholarship search resources that may yield some results for you. Be sure to read up on how to avoid scams. My best advice on scholarships is to apply early and look beyond the large (and highly competitive) scholarships and consider the smaller, niche scholarships.
Also, be sure to let the college counseling office know well in advance of any deadlines about what needs to be mailed from school (for example: letters of recommendation, test scores, transcript, etc.). Good luck!
Northwood boarding students are also advised to contact the guidance counselor at their hometown high school to determine which scholarships are available to students in their hometowns.
These are the most popular scholarship resources:
- Scholarship Search on Family Connection/Naviance (log in required)
- Raise.me (micro scholarships)
Northwood’s college counselors have also heard good things about these scholarship resources:
- National Health Service Corps (for Health Services related scholarships)
